      If there was ever any project I'd want to get my head into and have a good look around, it would be this one....

        My friend, a 2nd mate, was working on what I guess you'd call a guard ship, stopping people gaining access to the conrcordia whilst they were welding the tanks up. He had some pretty interesting diagrams and information on him, which is openly available, if you look up some of the companies working on the refloating. Sorry I can't think of the name to search for it for yous.

        Here is some satire...

          The rerighting of the Costa Concordia is underway. Was delayed 20 minutes due to a storm.

              Just click the video at the top of the page.

                All rather poignant.

                    Can't leave it there next to that small port now can you.

                    Not surprising its costing so much, its an insanely big project.

                      Looks to be about half-way out now, and all going well.

                      Bloody interesting project....

                        So I guess this is an example of how not to do it?

                        Really quite interesting... decent story to tell afterwards too!

                          In what way? Do you mean the salvage operation, because if so, no.

                            sorry, general driving of the ship. The salvage is impressive!

                              Ah OK.

                              Yeah, apparently Giglio Island was the give way vessel at the time.
